        Through The Years With Hef and Bunny (Small Archive of TLS From Hugh Hefner to Bunny Yeager)

      Chicago, 1958. First edition. A small (3 item) archive of correspondence between Hugh Hefner and Bunny Yeager. (1.) Two page Typed Letter Signed, dated April 18, 1958, from Hugh Hefner to Bunny Yeager, on the old Playboy letterhead. Very good; some slight soiling, foxing. An interesting, behind the scenes glimpse at Hef as editor, planning photo shoots with his "favorite Playmate photographer" and giving some particularly detailed instructions for one photograph, from which it can be deduced Hefner knew what he wanted in Playmate photographs because of some previous consideration, to put it politely. Signed as "Hef" at the close. (2.) One page TLS, dated August 21 1958 on the updated Playboy letterhead. Hefner dispatches in brisk fashion several of Bunny?'s suggested contributions. Very good; light, scattered foxing, folded for mailing, else fine. Signed as ?"Hef?" at the close. (3.) One page TLS, dated August 30, 1994, on Hefner?'s personal letterhead, politely declining a submission from Bunny, but mentioning again one of Bunny?'s models, whom he mentions in the letter dated April 18, 1958. Very good or better; folded for mailing, else fine. Signed "Love, Hef" at the close. It seems that contributions from, and the importance of the great Bunny Yeager in the early days of Playboy magazine is overlooked and/or forgotten. A review of the early issues, however, shows she made a substantial impact as far as establishing the look and the brand of the Playmate. Then too, correspondence from Hefner does not seem to be particularly common in the marketplace, even as there must be a considerable amount of it somewhere; and correspondence in which Hefner reveals his thoughts on how to pose a particular Playmate is even less common.

Rather, Cecil Beaton's New York presents Beaton's visual interpretations of the city by interweaving his striking photographs with a narrative description of the artist's inspirations. Overall, Cecil Beaton's New York provides a unique look at both New York City's urban landscape and Beaton's creative process. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Mani: xiii,[5],320pp, with frontispiece and title-page vignette by Craxton, map of the southern Peloponnese by John Woodcock, and 26 photographs by Joan Eyres Monsell (the author's wife); Mani: Publisher's scarlet cloth, spine and upper cover stamped gilt, price-clipped (rather aggressively, catching just the corner of the final letter of the photographer's name). Near Fine, pages clean and binding secure, neatly erased name from front fly leaf, two corners lightly bumped; Near Fine jacket, spine panel very gently faded and top tip lightly rubbed.

All in all, an attractive set. During the Second World War, Leigh Fermor was stationed in Albania, Greece, and occupied Crete, where, disguised as a shepherd in the mountains, he helped organize the resistance. After the War he traveled in the West Indies and then settled in Greece. Mani, an exploration of that country's southernmost promontory, one of the most isolated regions of the world, is considered by some his finest book. ("Almost every page has its own literary tour de force, often with intimidating displays of learning and research mixed with fantasy, imagination and acute descriptions of the scene itself." Robin Hanbury-Tenison, Geographical: 76; pp. 42-49). It was followed by a sequel, Roumeli (the ancient name for the lands from the Bosphorus to the Adriatic and from Macedonia to the Gulf of Corinth) explores Northern Greece and its minority communities, taking the reader among Sarakatsan shepherds, the monasteries of Meteora and the villages of Krakora, among itinerant peddlers and beggars. Leigh Fermor was widely regarded as Britain's greatest travel writer during his lifetime, and he was once described as "a cross between Indiana Jones, James Bond and Graham Greene." N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves.

        Solar Barque

      [N.p.]: Edwards Brothers, 1958. Octavo, original pictorial paper wrappers. Illustrated by Peter Loomer. Light toning and soiling to wrappers, front joint rubbed. Housed in a custom slipcase. First edition of the self-published final novel in Nin?'s experimental Cities of the Interior sequence, later retitled The Seduction of the Minotaur. Set in a ?"drugging?" Mexican town, the novel follows the American heroine's frustrated escape into the tropics: "The farther she traveled into unknown places, unfamiliar places, the more precisely she could find within herself a map showing only the cities of the interior." This copy is inscribed by Anaïs Nin to ?"Norman Mailer and Mrs. Mailer?" on the front free endpaper. Nin and Mailer were united in their strategic linking of sexuality and creativity, although Nin privately decried Mailer?'s glorification of violence, calling it ?"a symptom of impotence?" in her journals. A very good copy, with an excellent literary association.

In der Zeitschrift wurde von den Protagonisten der Schweizer Schule beziehungsweise ihrer strengen Zürcher Fraktion ein fundamentaler Diskurs über die Grundlagen einer angesagten objektiven Kommunikation und einer konstruktiven Gestaltung geführt. Der Einfluss der Bewegung kann nicht hoch genug eingeschätzt werden. Weltweit wurde die Schweizer Schule. auch «International Style» genannt. zum Vorbild für die aufkommende konzeptionelle Ausrichtung des Corporate Design von zunehmend global operierenden Grossunternehmen. Aber auch auf die Gestaltung solitärer Aufgaben wie Plakaten. Ausstellungen und Publikationen hatte die Bewegung vorbildhaften Einfluss. Die Neue Grafik ist heute ein wichtiger Orientierungspunkt der jüngeren Geschichte grafischer Gestaltung. Nach dem digitalen Höhenflug lässt sich eine neue Nachfrage nach sachbezogenen Konzeptionen und einer klaren Formensprache feststellen. So ist auch das Interesse an der fast fundamentalistisch zu nennenden Haltung der vier Zürcher Grafiker zu erklären. die als Herausgeber für die Inhalte der Zeitschrift verantwortlich zeichneten.» [Dank an den Lars Müller Verlag] Versand D: 20,00 EUR Buchwesen - Buchdruck, Typo Kunst - Grafikdesign

Book tall8vo& 4to, 23 & 27cm, 2 volumes, (text & atlas portfolio), [xviii],clxviii,202,[1]p & atlas, 2nd Spanish edition; edited by Porrua, this Octavo 2ndedition is limited to 225 numbered copies of which 25 are lettered and200 are numbered, this being #192, in the De Luxe Binding, with 8 viewplates & 9 folding maps and plans in the separate atlas portfolio, onfine extra stock paper . . This set bound in de luxe binding inquarter crushed green morocco, blind ruled raised bands, gilt spinetitles, (Cockerel style) marbled boards, in fine condition. (cgc) Thisis a fine press edition from the very rare 1802 edition; this edition isequally rare. The commander of the expedition was Don DionysioAlcala-Galiano, who was probably the author of this work. See Sabin69221. The text of the rare first edition is faithfully followed, printedon fine paper, and is accompanied by the same maps and plates. Howescalls this an "important voyage up the Pacific coast and the last to beundertaken by Spain ; written probably by the commander, Galiano, butattributed also to Jose de Espinosa y Tello. and to Cayetano Valdes. The Introduccion,' giving a splendid historical sketch of earlier Spanishexplorations in the same region, was the work of the maritime authority,[Martin Fernandez de] Navarrette." Henry R. Wagner suggests that the mapsare better in some respects than Vancouver's and were used by Humboldtas models for his Essai Politique sur le Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne(1811). Exceptionally scarce, even in this Second Edition which wasproduced in thick card wraps, it is very rare in this binding. Strathern167(I); Howes (Gallano]. G18; Sabin 66221; Streeter 2458]. We found norecords that mention this de-luxe binding. .

        The Cat in the Hat Comes Back

      New York: Random House, 1958. First edition. Octavo, original illustrated boards, pictorial endpapers. Inscribed by the author, "For Jason with kindest regards! Dr. Seuss." Fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket. The year after Theodore Geisel, better known as Dr. Seuss, broke new ground in children's books with The Cat in the Hat, he brought back the immediately popular character--with 26 little cats under his red-and-white stovepipe, not to mention the mysterious "Voom"--for a new madcap adventure. The title was the second from Beginner Books, Geisel's own imprint at Random House; in very little time, as that line's identifying logo, "the Cat's image would become synonymous with learning to read" (Cohen, 324).
